April layout for Scrappingville and Pretty Little Studio's new line

Hello everyone, I'm blogging another MONDAY TUTORIALS today! We'll be incoporating mix-media with a scrapbooking layout, hope you have fun with this :)
Apply a layer of gesso on your white cardstock, a thin layer will do. Once dry, use circle and sun template (or any other templates will do) and add a thick modeling paste for a good coverage and let it dry.
When the modeling paste is completely dry, spray water onto your layout. Pick your favourite mist and spray them on the water, then spray water onto your mist again to get a watercolour effect. Concentrate your colour spraying especially on the modeling paste. Becareful of water dripping out from your layout, it gets very messy here :)
Leave your layout to dry and once dried you'll have something that looks like this. It will turn out to be a watercolour effect.
I didn't like the ugly circle effect on the left, so I covered it up with a big similar to polaroid style photo there and start adding stickers here and there.
Added a banner sticker on the left top corner with some stamped birds flying around.

A bicycle sticker on the right bottom and used alpha stickers to spell the phrase out at the same area. Play with different styles of phrasing :)
More cute element stickers were added around the polaroid plus some layerings. Punched out hearts and backed with a different patternpaper.

Double and triple layered the balloons for a super dimensional look, because the layout is uneven.
Hand cut your own letterings for title on pattern paper, they are more unique than Thickers! You can use a die cutting machine like the Sillhouette if you own one :)
There you have it, hope you have fun with the mix media idea :)

Get pattern papers and sticker sheets at Scrappingville shop where everything is available there!!!

Melissa allowed us to show everyone the behind the scene's of another new line coming up... spend your lovely summer with this new line with pastel bicycles, butteflies, sand castles and hexagons! more die cut flashcards for you too! They'll sure make your day :)
They will be available very very soon, I'll promise :)
Please don't be silly by missing the current MONSIEUR line :DDD it is equivalently stunning!!! Go to the shop and at least get the vintage man stickers and tags for goodness sake, hahahaah :)))
